The finance concentration prepares students for positions in banking, investments, financial planning, cash management and international finance in both public and private institutions. This concentration also assists in preparing students for professional certifications such as the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) or Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
A minimum grade of “C-” is required in all Accounting and Finance (ACFI) courses toward fulfillment of the requirements for the accounting and finance major. This policy applies to students accepted for matriculation as freshmen or as transfer students enrolled for the fall 2014 semester or thereafter. Students who receive a grade lower than “C-” in ACFI courses may continue as accounting and finance majors, but must retake those courses and earn a minimum grade of “C-“, so that no ACFI required courses with grades below “C-” will be counted toward fulfillment of the requirements in the accounting and finance major.
